Just spoke with @realDonaldTrump. He sounds great and wants libertarians and everyone across the country to know he is ending the war in Afghanistan!
In his term, @realDonaldTrump has already brought home thousands of our brave soldiers. He wants the rest home by Christmas and a stop to our endless wars.

Now station them at our Southern Border.
The globalists palpably hate Trump. His America first perspective and his intent to disengage America from debilitating, useless foreign entanglements is at the core of their malicious hatred.
Mexico has our southern border covered.
Station them along the Cali border
Christmas 2017 sounds like a good day.
It’s not even 20 years and they want to end it already ?
Good. We should never enter a war again until we decide as a nation to completely destroy the enemy and only accept an unconditional surrender. My thoughts on the Afghan War from the beginning were simple. Get in. Destroy. Get out. Poison their water. Salt their fields, especially their poppy fields. Let them die of starvation and thirst. It would sent a message to the rest of the world that you don’t F with America.
War in Afghanistan will continue as it always has, since before it was called Afghanistan.
America Last globalists are determined to crush America First patriots and believe they can do so by taking out Trump.
John Bolton will be sad.
My grandson is there. He said couple months ago the Pres. announced he was bringing home the soldiers they all thought it was just talk.
He said they really are winding down and leaving.
Will the last soldier leaving Afghanistan please blow out the candle?
I am over the moon with this news..
Foreign policy is Trump’s biggest strength while Biden is totally clueless. He NEEDS to highlight this more!
Great! I have questioned our presence in the Mid East for years.
America held ALL the cards after 9/11 and now we need to fold. Ironic and sickening how Afghanistan was a waste and NYC as we speak has destroyed itself and its Police. I think Bin Laden would be proud what a magnificent job he did because America did all of the work post 9/11 to do what Bin Laden wanted.
If were going to pull out our troops by Christmas then we should pull them out now.
I would not want to be a Marine standing his post at the embassy on New Years.
Not that easy. What you’re describing is what we might have done 200 years ago. We have rules now. And these rules, with their intent to humanize us, don’t include what some would considered senseless killing.
Since the Korean conflict in the early 1950’s, war changed. Chinese and North Korean forces captured American military personnel as prisoners of war. Unlike America’s previous wars, these American prisoners then faced a deadly new enemy, the Eastern World’s POW environment. It was the first American war that U.S. prisoners of war were viewed by an enemy as more than soldiers from the other side temporarily restrained from conducting war and whose desire to control the minds of U.S. prisoners extended the war into the POW camps. We do the same thing today as they did 60 years ago.
In 1954, the Geneva Accords were written by 4 countries: the USSR, the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. This tried to civilize war, even though on the battlefield it didn’t. But when dealing with non-combatants, it did. So we are only allowed to fight against the enemy even though the enemy is supported by the non-combatants. Like I said, there are rules.
